CFP: 'Piracy' - antiTHESIS Journal, Volume 18 (2008).

"In civilizations without boats, dreams dry up, espionage takes the
place of adventure, and the police take the place of pirates."

antiTHESIS, one of Australia's longest running postgraduate
interdisciplinary journals, now invites creative, scholarly and visual
contributions for Volume 18, 'Piracy.' Despite its negative
representation in official histories, piracy presents a site of
contestation and alterity within an increasingly rationalised and
globalised modernity.  Piracy brings the concepts of ownership and
territory into question; digital piracy disrupts the opposition
between work and play, producer and consumer (Kline, 2003).  As such,
piracy as concept and as practice offers a way to re-think issues
within and between disciplines. We seek papers that explore the idea
of piracy in relation to the following themes:

--piracy and new media
--piracy and the state
--cultural representation of pirates
--copyright & intellectual property
--plagiarism, literary appropriation and allusion
--musical piracy
--terrorism and piracy
--immigration, liminality and piracy
--maps, geography and exploration
--treasure and trade
--piracy, gender and sexuality
--and other related creative submissions

Creative and scholarly papers must be of no more than 6,000 words in
length with academic citations conforming to the 15th edition of the
Chicago Manual of Style. All submissions must consist of a Microsoft
Word or Open Office document attached to an email. Visual pieces,
including original cover art designed for a 150mm x 210mm space, are
also welcome. Preliminary submissions may be made via e-mail and must
include a 72 or 75 i JPEG image, the title of the work, and the
artist's contact information. Upon selection, we will require a
print-quality image on CD or PC formatted disk and a signed letter or
release form giving permission for its use by antiTHESIS.

Scholarly papers, poetry, prose and visual pieces submitted to the
journal must be received by Friday, 21st September, 2007.
